Why a career in science is for me video and poster

How do you encourage those students who really do like science but cannot see themselves in a science-based career?

Many students struggle to think of more than a handful of scientific careers so this new careers video and poster from the Royal Society, aimed at students aged 11 to 16, aims to demonstrate the wealth of scientific subjects that can be accessed beyond school and the excitement that a career in science can bring. By having a positive impact on the challenges that face our society, a career in science can bring job satisfaction and opportunities for travel and global collaboration.

The why a career in science is for me video and poster aims to demonstrate that it is not just the facts that students learn in lessons that are important for future scientists, but also those other skills that students develop in investigative work both in lessons and in extracurricular opportunities.
